Our polyamide and elastane are made using a very specific eco-sustainable production process. It reduces water and energy consumption by 20% compared to standard practices. It therefore saves 2,500 liters of water and reduces CO2 emissions by 19Kg per 1,000 meters of fabric produced when compared to production of normal polyamide and elastane.
Our polyamide and elastane are completely renewable, sourced from Castor Bean plant. This plant grows in very arid areas, therefore requires very little to no irrigation. There is also no use for chemicals, therefore no pesticides or fertilisers are used.
The finished material is therefore hypoallergenic, perfect for sensitive skin. It is also antibacterial and possesses natural odour control properties. It is thermally insulating and breathable, keeping your body temperature regulated. Taking natural properties from the plant it is sourced from, bio-based polyamide and elastane are very fast-drying and absorb moisture very well. They are also very lightweight, super stretchy and very comfortable. They have a soft touch finish and a perfect fit.
Given the resilience of the plant they come from, our bio-based polyamide and elastane are much more durable than their normal standard alternatives.
